This icon of our God and Savior Jesus Christ dates to the sixth or seventh century. It was painted at the Monastery of St. Catherine in the Sinai Peninsula. Due to the remote location of the monastery, this icon survived the period of iconoclasm that rocked the Church in the ninth and tenth centuries, and stands as a witness to a golden era in the Church's life.
Deep browns, golds, charcoals and grays cause a stunning balanced tone to this image. We have skillfully and expertly brought the tones to life and no home collection is complete without this image. Our Legacy Icon of this image is a must-have.
